Former India skipper Mohd Azharuddin said the 'spot-fixing' allegations concerning Pakistani cricketers should be investigated properly by the ICC.

Ranaghat, West Bengal:

Former India skipper Mohammad Azharuddin on Tuesday said the 'spot-fixing' allegations concerning Pakistani cricketers should be investigated properly by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

"It is a sensitive issue and matter of investigation by the ICC," Azharuddin told reporters.

"The ICC is investigating the matter and the guilty, if found, should be punished," he added.

Azhar was in the town to attend a Congress party meeting.

World cricket was rocked by the spot-fixing scam last Sunday after 'News of the World' posted a 'sting operation' video showing an alleged fixer Mazhar Majeed making bowlers Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif bowl deliberate no-balls during the fourth Test against England at Lord's.

The bookie also claimed to have links with Indian bookmakers.
